Kunos Natural Oil

Here at the Gallery we use Kunos Natural Oil Sealer No. 244 with Svalos Thinner No. 222 as the finish on nearly all of the Gallery’s in house product. Kunos oil is made from natural safe ingredients that do not pose any danger to personal health or the environment and is suitable for treating timber food preparation utensils such as bench tops, salad bowls etc. Kunos is a waterproof product to allow for washing of utensils. We use the same finish on furniture, sculptures and other items found in the Gallery that are made of wood.
